METALLURGY OF IRON AND STEEL.
melted iron added to it. Taking the case of a 50-ton furnace and assuming that thirty tons of low-carbon metal is retained and twenty tons of pig-iron added, the average of the new bath will contain about 1.5 per cent, of carbon, which, will be quite a manageable mixture.
Considerable stress is laid on the addition of iron oxide before the addition of pig-iron in order to create a violent reaction and quickly oxidize the metalloids, and it is claimed by Mr. Talbot that this oxidation produces heat. It will be shown in Section Xlle that this is a great mistake and that the reaction absorbs much energy. Were it not so, there would be no difficulty in eliminating
